When Shaunie O’Neal reached a divorce settlement with her ex-husband Shaquille, some thought the allegations of his cheating would lead this scorned woman to curl up in a corner and lick her wounds — lying on her hefty pile of alimony. But this was not the case. Shaunie very intelligently used knowledge of his affairs to secure a better settlement than would have been allowed by their existing pre-nuptial agreement. And of course she parlayed that fortune and the experience gained by being married to the NBA star into her “Basketball Wives” franchises. Now the executive producer of a few hit reality TV series, Shaunie is certainly an industrious gold digger who made good.
